Situated on street level, the MLC Café & Bar is the perfect spot to sit and watch the hustle of the city. Located directly across the road from the Auckland Town Hall and other entertainment venues, this makes the café ideal for pre show dining or drinks.

Opening Hours

The MLC Café is open for breakfast Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 11am and on the weekends from 7am to 12pm, for lunch Monday to Friday from 12pm until 2 pm, and for dinner (7 days a week) from 5pm until 9.30pm.

Times may vary on holidays.

Tasty, Contemporary Good Value Menu

Our chef has incorporated the very best and freshest of New Zealand produce, meat and seafood into our menus which our wine experts have matched with a selection of our country’s finest drops. 

Temporary Closure

Scenic Hotel Auckland is in the midst of an extensive programme of enhancement to the exterior of our landmark, heritage building as well as the entire interior design throughout the hotel, resulting in an all new premium guest experience. With work about to start on the public communal spaces, and to minimise guest disruption due to the intrusive nature of some of the work taking place, we wish to advise the temporary closure of the hotel and restaurant.

We wish to thank you in advance for your patience during this time, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
